Magic arrived at The Montgomery Performing Arts Centre on Friday 19 September 2009 when International Magicians of the Year, The Spencers and their Theatre of Illusion popped into town.
GreatNewsMontgomery.com was there to catch the action.
Other winners of the prestigious International Magicians of the Year title include David Copperfield, Chris Angel and Penn and Teller. This is the BIG ONE for magicians.
Theatre of Illusion is described as a magical concert for your eyes
“Audiences cross over a threshold of disbelief only moments after the Spencers take the stage. The duo presents a big, high-tech stage show that combines drama, comedy, romance, and suspense with elaborate stage illusions that include dazzling special effects and magnificent set design.
